Irwin Allen TV Movie Starring Natalie Wood & The Music Composer
2 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Irwin Allen's The Memory Of Eva Ryker is a change from the 1970s disaster movies this man was dishing out left, right and centre. But the sea loving Irwin Allen just had to have a Poseidon-looking ship in this film.

Three things make this film worth watching (1) Natalie Wood, (2) Bradford Dillman as a memorable bad guy, (3) An old-fashioned score by Richard LaSalle.

But the movie has problems. This may of been a fun show 23 years ago, but now, seeing a 1980 movie pretending to be a 1940s Hollywood melodrama, there is now too much of the 1980s in it. And that scene in "The Australian Outback", it seems Irwin Allen knew nothing about Australia as every Aussie detail of this scene is very WRONG! We don't talk like the cop in that scene. And one line from this cop "I don't read" is almost insulting to me as an Aussie.

See this movie for the above mentioned three things but don't expect too much. Also keep in mind that in the mid-1980s Irwin retired from films and TV. This was one of his last shows.
